In the quest to claim South African reality television’s biggest prize, over the past few months Big Break Legacy contestants have been battling it out with tasks ranging from thinking out of the box to developing strategic business and marketing plans. So, who walked away with the grand prize?

At just 22, Sanele Makinane from North West province has been named the winner of Season 2 of The Big Break Legacy.

The young entrepreneur beat two other hopefuls for the coveted prize and has walked off with a whopping R5 million to invest in his business, Apex Commercial Solutions.

Sanele’s Apex Commercial Solutions uses information communications technology systems which have been made possible through an initiative called Mzansi Digital.

The initiative helps those in previously disadvantaged communities in North West. Through the spread of technology, Sanele says, “I want to help make the country digital”.

The promising businessman has foresight beyond his years, claiming, “One must lay a firm foundation for growth in order to manage your own growth. Also, you must spare time to get to know your business before appointing others to do work for you. You must master all the tasks.”

In the quest to claim South African reality television’s biggest prize, over the past few months the contestants have been battling it out with tasks ranging from thinking out of the box to developing strategic business and marketing plans and using the valuable resource of time to their benefit.

The two other entrepreneurs who were in line for the life-changing prize were Jared Pillai (24) from Pretoria and Tsepiso Makhubedu (19) from Nelspruit, Mpumalanga.

While Jared and Tsepiso didn’t claim the grand prize, they did receive a car from Chevrolet (which was also part of Sanele’s prize) for making it to the final episode.

And for the first time the show went international with an episode of The Big Break Legacy being filmed in London.

The show’s creator and a judge on the panel, Ezra Ndwandwe, says this has been the best season yet. “With the programme going international, we can now look forward to adding value to South African entrepreneurs and exposing them to what other businesspeople are doing.”

The Big Break Legacy aims to start a global revolution of entrepreneurs who build new enterprises which are innovative, exciting and sustainable and, most importantly, enterprises that contribute meaningfully towards the social development of communities and fighting unemployment.
